Some mellow yellow foliage, at last

Here in Israel, the trees don't all agree with the idea of Autumn. Some go for it, some really don't, and some don't even remember to vote. Generally, around November, you find a tree or two turning brownish, and after a couple of months you realize that its leaves have fallen off. But Autumn here does not include the brilliant reds and oranges that I remember from my childhood. Oh, well - that's okay.

Anyway, I was driving to work a couple of days ago, when I came across these - they were a lovely surprise. For us, this is foliage!



So pretty, right?

Same here in the UK, only a few leaves are left on the trees.
The sun's rays on the grass could also be one them MYM. Anyway, thanks for sharing your story and the photo.
